Listen: 3 Pharmacists Share Their Secrets for Medicare Open Enrollment Success

Posted on October 14, 2019 by Amplicare Team

For many patients, Medicare Open Enrollment is the only time of year to make changes to their Medicare plans. This makes it crucial for pharmacists to offer their help and guidance to patients. To achieve this, there are some universal actions pharmacists are encouraged to take, including offering plan comparisons, increased patient communications, and spreading the word in the community. But the best ways to execute on these may differ by pharmacy. After all, what works in one community may not always be a sure bet in another. 

That said, there is a lot to learn from actions others have successfully taken. Plus, testing new tactics to find your own tried-and-true method is always advisable. In this podcast, three pharmacists — Liz Altmiller of Your Drug Store, Bob Hinkle of Johnson’s Pharmacy, and Chris Cornelison of Iuka Discount Drugs — share their proven strategies for success during Medicare Open Enrollment. Listen below to learn their tactics for helping patients navigate Medicare and how they use resources like Amplicare to increase their pharmacies' profitability for the upcoming year.
